I am 6 weeks postop from C6&7 spinal fusion. I am still having consideral pelvic pain after walking medium distances, & after sitting for short periods. How long does this take to resolve. The pain is not as great as newly postop but I thought it would be resolved by now. Am I wrong?


  • I am 9 weeks out from a L5-S1 fusion and still have hip pain every once in awhile. I think it just take time for all our little aches and pains to go away. Considering what I had before surgery. This is a godsend. The only thing I dont like is how much it hurts getting in and out of the car especially if Im stuck to the seat..lol.

    Best Wishes,
    Chritina :)
